Yeah, I see that. It would suck to try to equip a large frog room/collection with those but undoubtedly there can be some cheaper low wattage units found somewhere with some effort. The thing that scares me is that Roman is mainly a Reptile guy. A cannot imagine even diurnal amphibians enduring a 115F heat location for more than a few seconds. No don't get me wrong, I've seen dart frogs 'bask' in high lighting, but again, humidity has got to be high as well or else they are going to commit foggy suicide and beef-jerky themselves.

In any event, I'd ALWAYS put those spotlights on a seconds timer or similar.

Something I plan on doing is having them connected to a seperate timer and running them for a very limited amount of time.
I will take pics when it's setup.

Maybe some puck lights are lower wattage and not as hot.

Wow 115 degrees F is scary high. I don't want to throw that heat in a viv in Florida, it's hot enough here already. If that temperature forces a frog to have limited exposure to UVB because it can only stand the heat for a few seconds, is it really an effective solution?
